DS thing stops you playing too long, too close

Play too much DS? You probably need a gadget that switches your console off for you after a predetermined amount of time.

And here it is. The Health Control Game Timer not only flicks the power switch after 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes, but also alerts you to holding your DS too close to your face.

Obviously, you can just remove it at any time, making the entire thing largely pointless, but you know. Different stroked.

They cost ¥3,990. Thanks, Engadget.
